NEG­A­TIVE WAY TO THE TOP!

The Football League Paper - - INSIDE -

DE­FEATS for Hud­der­s­field (+1) and Read­ing (+2) to­day could see one or both en­ter the Cham­pi­onship play­offs with a neg­a­tive goal dif­fer­ence.

How rare would this be? Ex­tremely. Since the for­mat was in­tro­duced in 1986-87, 118 teams have con­tested the semi-fi­nals.

Of those, only one – Brighton with -6 in 1991 – kicked off with a goals tally less than zero. Pre­pare for some at­tri­tional games.
